The owners of the water right exercised from the original well and the appropriation of water from the supplemental well shall be the same amount of 14.25 acre feet of water allowed by the subject water right. The supplemental well shall be completed in the same underground stream, channel, artesian basin, reservoir or lake as the original well.
